From fast food or take-out sandwiches to gourmet or waterfront dining, when you are in search of a delicious lunch in Cancun there are plenty of options.
For low-priced options, check out Ty-Coz, Los de Pescado, El Galeon del Caribe, Blue Gecko Cantina or The Surfin Burrito, all located in the Hotel Zone. Ty-Coz serves up some of the best baguette sandwiches in Cancun. There is only a take-out window and a couple of tables on the sidewalk in front of the restaurant. The Surfin Burrito offers made-to-order burritos and tacos, as well as grilled items, like jerk chicken or barbecue ribs, and is open 24 hours a day. Casual seafood restaurant Los de Pescado only has about six options on their menu, but they are all delicious. El Galeon del Caribe aka Las Pescadillas offers an authentic local experience in the Hotel Zone. Blue Gecko Cantina serves huge tacos with a twist, and creative cocktails.
For mid-priced meals, El Fish Fritanga, Vegan Planet and Le Natura are all excellent choices.
If you are looking for something a bit more upscale, El Cafe Mexicano and Mocambo fit the bill. Mocambo serves seafood and is one of the only independent restaurants (not in a resort) in the Hotel Zone that is located on the Caribbean Sea. El Cafe Mexicano, located inside The Ritz-Carlton, Cancun, has a lunch buffet as well as a full menu of scrumptious dishes.
Many other lunch options can be found in La Isla Shopping Village, Kukulcan Plaza and Forum by the Sea.
